“Flagler Beach Pier Re-Opening”
The City of Flagler Beach is proud to announce that our world famous Pier is re-opening to the public today at 6:00 a.m.
A grand re-opening/ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the Pier on Saturday, July 1, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.
The Flagler Beach Pier sustained considerable damage during Hurricane Matthew and as a result was closed to the public for extensive repairs. Over the past nine (9) months structural engineers have worked diligently to repair our Pier and we look forward to our citizens and visitors enjoying all that the Pier has to offer.
Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney stated “We’re extremely excited about the re-opening of our Pier and I’d like to kindly reminder our local surfers that City Ordinance 6-56 (a) prohibits surfing within one hundred fifty (150) feet on either side of the municipal Pier”. Doughney continued “Our historic Pier is a cornerstone of our beautiful City and we’ve all patiently waited for it to re-open. Those who enjoy fishing off the Pier and those that enjoy surfing outside of the one hundred fifty (150) foot limit can continue to coexist based on following established rules and mutual respect.”
